.@SenRonJohnson on alleged 'secret society' mentioned in @FBI agents' texts: "That 'secret society' - we have an informant that's talking about a group, they were holding secret meetings offsite." #SpecialReport https://t.co/0NPVFhqWiY pic.twitter.com/NaXelnfaJP— Fox News (@FoxNews) January 23, 2018
Among the texts left behind, Peter confided to his paramour that he was afraid to join the Mueller investigation because his gut told him there was no "there there", but that he felt obligated to join to undo some of the damage that they had been forced to do in the Clinton email investigation: Peter Strzok on Joining Mueller's RUSSIA Investigation: "My Gut Says There's No Big 'There' There," But Then, It May be a Chance to "Fix It and Finish It"
Despite his gut telling him that there was no "there" there on the Russia claims, Strzok nevertheless discussed "fix[ing] things" -- he seems to have felt that even a rigged Hillary fake-investigation was too much, and wanted to "fix" that -- and his possible Rendezvous With History if he joined Mueller's team:Strzok and Page Wanted to 'Fix' Damage They Did in Clinton Investigation, Text Reveals
. Strzok continues, "And then I think, A case which would be in the history books." He adds, "A million people sit in [Assistant Director] and staff jobs. This is a chance to DO. In maybe the most important case of our lives." So that's the appeal of joining the team.Remember, he's chomping at the bit to "fix it and finish it" and "DO" even though he thinks this RUSSIA bullshit is all bullshit.
The rest of the first page appears to be Strzok flattering Page, telling her what an asset she would be to the team. He then adds, "For me, and this case, I personally have a sense of unfinished business. unleashed it with MYE. Now I need to fix it and finish it." MYE was short for "midyear exam," the case name given to the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Is Strzok saying he has to "fix" that investigation by participating in the Mueller investigation of Trump?
Meanwhile, Ultrasooper Duper Ex-FBI agent James Comey is lawyering up, in an odd way: Comey Buddy Who Leaked Confidential FBI Documents to the Press Now Claims He's Comey's Attorney
I suppose this means he'll invoke attorney-client privilege to hide Comey's misdeeds -- as well as his own.But not a sliver of corruption, right? The FBI and DOH need to be decimated, in the new, modern sense of the word (eliminating most of), rather than the old Roman meaning (to kill one in ten, to make an example of), although that might be a good start.
After all, it's not just illegal for Comey to leak confidential papers -- it's usually illegal for any non-authorized person to possess them or transmit them.
The Federalist called Richman about this matter, and heard the surprise news that now Richman was, allegedly Comey's attorney.
Or "attorney," anyway.
"If it's true that Professor Richman had four of the seven memos, then in light of the fact that four of the seven memos the Committee reviewed are classified, it would appear that at least one memo the former FBI director gave Professor Richman contained classified information," [Senator and RUSSIAN BOT Chuck] Grassley noted in the letter.Additional reporting provided by four RUSSIAN BOTS.
Reached by phone on Tuesday, Richman refused to say when his legal representation of Comey began or whether he was personally representing Comey when the former FBI director testified before Congress in June 2017 about his deliberate leaking of the FBI records. The specific timing of the attorney-client relationship is important, because it may shield conversations between Comey and Richman regarding the coordinated leak of FBI records to the media from law enforcement scrutiny. Richman’s legal work on behalf of Comey was not known before today, as Comey testified before Congress in 2017 that Richman was merely a friend.
1. kill, destroy, or remove a large percentage or part of. "the project would decimate the fragile wetland wilderness"
2. historical: kill one in every ten of (a group of soldiers or others) as a punishment for the whole group.
